Mid-Suffolk Train Yard Information Center Opens Today at Ronkonkoma Station as Part of LIRR Public Outreach

Ronkonkoma Station – Announcement of Mid-Suffolk Train Yard Information Center - 01-29-15

MTA Long Island Rail Road today opened the Mid-Suffolk Train Yard Information Center at Ronkonkoma Station, so customers and community residents can learn about the LIRR’s proposal for enlarging its train yard in Ronkonkoma.

The expanded train yard is key to improving Main Line service by providing more peak-hour trains, better cleaning and maintenance for train cars, and direct service to Grand Central Terminal as part of the East Side Access project. The project, currently budgeted at $76 million, would expand the existing train yard, located east of Ronkonkoma Station, to adjacent property already owned by the LIRR. The expansion would on property south of the yard and further away from the local residential neighborhood.
